: ) : ) I love the longer lists. And thanks for including Paranormalcy!

Can I also recommend Anna and the Boy Masterpiece by Stephanie Perkins? It's coming out next fall and one of my all time favorite books!

Wow, you're list is huge! I'm excited about this challange too. I think you have all my books on there :)

Rebecca said...

Great selection of books you've picked out, I'm still debating whether I should join this or not. Good luck with your challenge.

Daisy Whitney said...

I am totally looking forward to ANNA AND THE BOY MASTERPIECE too! And I can vouch for Suzanne Young's THE NAUGHTY LIST and its sequel SO MANY BOYS. Both are fab! Suz is my critique partner so I get to see her stuff early!

Karen Kincy said...

Ooo, I see OTHER on your list! :)

I've been trying to think of a fun way to thank the bloggers who plan on reading my novel, so please have a rummage through my goodies page:

Stephanie Perkins said...

Oh, yay!! Thank you for adding ANNA AND THE BOY MASTERPIECE to your list. I'm so happy and flattered!

I've had the pleasure of reading Kiersten's Paranormalcy, and it ROCKS — hilarious, romantic, & thrilling. The book world is going to flip out over it next year!

(And I can't wait to get my hands on The Mockingbirds, Sea, and The Naughty List!)
